Peckham-based producer Daniel Avery has had more big-ups in the last year than haircuts, with electronic luminaries such as The Chemical Brothers and Richie Hawtin saluting his offbeat releases. His debut, however, is in a league of its own. ‘Drone Logic’ blurs raw techno, piano house and – yes – drone into propulsive dancefloor poetry. It’s minimal without being clinical, catchy without being clichéd and, thanks to the influence of MBV and Neu!, full of sonic left turns. At a time when Avicii’s hillbilly-EDM mangle is seen as the cutting edge of dance music, Avery’s logic makes perfect sense.
